The Last King of Scotland

Today I saw The Last King of Scotland, starring Academy Award nominee Forest Whitaker.

MichaelVox and me review it on episode 21 of Cinebanter, which is available here.

Hi there ..a pre-emptive comment here..looking forward to hearing you and Michael on "Last King..."
Really enjoyed it this afternoon
(dayoff work..snowy weather)
Overall , i just marvelled at the idea of placing a fictional character in proximity to "real"/ anecdotal events, thus enabling the creation of a blistering Drama!
Mention Amin to most Americans and they will probably (as a friend of mine did)say ,"Raid on Entebbe" , and , of course , that is where this "ends"..the fictional character "escapes", and it's the beginning of the end for Idi Amin.
Cheers Chris Morrell
